The Bauchi State governor, Alhaji Isa Yuguda, has congratulated the new Managing Director/Editor-In-Chief of Nigerian Tribune, Mr Edward Dickson.
A release signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Ishola Michael, reads:

“I wish to convey to you heartfelt congratulations of His Excellency, Executive Governor of Bauchi State, Malam (Dr) Isa Yuguda FNIM, FNIPR, (Matawallen Bauchi; Ardon Cikin Gida Dukku; Obaseyaro of Oyo Empire) over your well-deserved elevation as the Managing Director/Editor-In-Chief of the oldest surviving privately owned newspaper in Nigeria, Nigerian Tribune titles published by African Newspapers of Nigeria Plc.

“Your elevation to the exalted office did not come to us as a surprise considering your track record as a journalist of repute and honest standing as demonstrated over the years. It is indeed a crown on your head as you have paid your professional dues.

“As you strive to keep the good legacy and virtues of late Papa Obafemi Awolowo as the head of ANN Plc, we pray that God will guide and guard you and see you through, we also wish that your tenure will be better than that of your predecessors.

“We assure you of our cooperation and support to enable you succeed; we are partners in progress. Once again, congratulations.”

Similarly, a former member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Oluwole Oke, has described the appointment of Mr Dickson, as a good decision on the part of Board of Directors of the organisation, headed by Yeye Oodua, Chief (Mrs) H.I.D Awolowo.

Oke, who was chairman, Committee on Defence, also lauded the appointments of editors for the three titles in the Tribune stable: Mr Debo Abdulai for the Nigerian Tribune, Mr Sina Oladeinde (Sunday Tribune) and Mr Lasisi Olagunju for Saturday Tribune.

The former lawmaker observed that Dickson was, no doubt, a thoroughbred professional, who knows his onion having gone through the ladder in his career, noting that the new team of editors, who also came from very rich professional and academic background, would be able to collaborate well with him to lift Tribune higher.

Oke enjoined members of the team to see themselves as servants rather than bosses in order to accomplish the corporate goal of the organisation in line with the confidence reposed in them by the business owners and members.

He also tasked the members of staff to cooperate with the new team in order to move Tribune forward.
